Temps in the low 80s, overcast with slight drizzle. Fished the south and east sides of Beck today from 3-3:30. The weeds are still around the entire shoreline, but they've dried up some, so it's not too bad. Tossed a white/charteuse chatterbait and shallow diving crankbait, but had not takers. I'm thinking about waiting until late september or early october before hitting Beck again... but will probably be too busy with school by then.

I totally agree, Culprit. I guess with the rain, I just didn't have the patience this afternoon, and because I wanted to hit the Chicago River for a little bit too.

This spring I had the pleasure of talking to a guy that has fished Beck since it's inception. He told me of the numbers and sizes of fish he caught at Beck. There are still some big bass and northerns in there, but they are limited in numbers.

toothdoc,

That is the feeling I get from there too. Limited numbers of quality fish with lots of pressure. I am sure that the right day could produce some dandy fish, but it would probably take some incredible luck or lots of man hours to be there when that happens. I used to live close so it was easy to stop by and take a few casts.
